Expo 2010 will be ongoing for 6 months beginning May 1 in Shanghai, China. Having lived in this city for almost 2 years in the last 3 years, I'm looking forward to seeing the new faces of Shanghai (Shanghai was like a major construction site for the last 2 years, what a mess!). Remember to visit only after the May 1st official opening (& try not to do it in the first 10 days of May as it's China's Golden Week, everyone who travels in China will surely be here, if you haven't seen more people than that in Disney World on New Year's or Christmas Eve, then this will be the place to be during the first 2 weeks of May!). Best time as far as I'm concerned is early to mid September when all the students have gone back to school & weather is most pleasant!

I won't be able to make it to this one in Las Vegas but those who are into technology and gadgets shouldn't. This is the show that features over 2700 exhibitors. Jan. 7 - 10. Go for it, Lunchers! For those who are able to make it there, please, please write reviews on those tablets that are going to hit the market soon! I wonder if Apple is going to surprise the market with another new awesome product! Wish I could be there!
We have Chinese New Year every year but this one is special for it falls on the same day as with Valentine's Day! Incidentally, Chinese New Year (in some way similar to 12 days of Christmas) lasts for 15 days & the last day of Chinese New Year is commonly also known as the Chinese Valentine's Day.

I'm not into sports but for those sports enthusiasts the first major sports event begins in Vancouver, Canada (Feb 12-28). I do love to watch figure skating so hopefully I'd be able to catch it on the TV.

The last time I was at the World Cup was in 2006 in Hamburg & Berlin. It was quite something to be among all those hot blooded males who were there for sports! Fun time! This year, it will be in South Africa, first time ever it's hosted by an Africa Nation. Hmm, sounds good. I should make a date with Glenn & his wife (a friend I met via VirtualTourist.com & in person when I visited Capetown)! June 11-July 11. Probably best time to extend trip to the deserts and dunes of Namibia too. I've been dying to get there!

Well, both different eclipses within 6 months or so. Why not, right? It's like after visiting Antarctica & then heading for the Arctic. So, Total Lunar Eclipse at end of the year sounds good to me ;-) Another date with North & South America or Japan.
36th G8 Summit is scheduled to be in Huntsville, Ontario, Canada at Deerhurst Resort (June 25-27). You can't attend it but you can certainly see it happening on the TV and news. (G8 Participants: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, UK, US)
Happening at the same time with the G8 Summit in June, the G20 Summit will be held in Toronto. What the G20 finance ministers & central bank governors decide have huge impacts on life around the world. So, make sure you catch the highlights! It affects if you end the year financially well or otherwise.
This one gets onto this list because although I wasn't a fan of golf I had been to this course during one of my visits to the U.K. Beautiful course overlooking the sea. Why it is on this list because it's the very first time Tiger Woods won't be here to win the tournament or even to play. So, the playing field is open to anyone and everyone who didn't get their chance with Woods around! Watch out for July 11!
